Factory in prime position, state-of-the-art production facilities, and 75% of the world's sandalwood oil are only some of the company's strengths. Its key flaws include an inability to make full use of existing resources and a lack of efficient marketing and public relations efforts. The research also shows the possibilities and threats. The study finds that a SWOT analysis is necessary to create and implement a strategy successfully. It's a potent tool, but how it's used is very dependent on the individual. As a suggestion rather than a prescription, this is the preferred course of action to adopt. Corporations must build on their strengths, rectify their weaknesses, and take actions to defend themselves from both within and outside threats in order to be successful. This allows them to anticipate and grab new opportunities before their competitors do. They also regularly monitor the status of the environment in which their organisation works.
